Mid-century modern meets 21st-century luxury

15 Bal Harbour, Broadbeach Waters, has the feel of a luxury hotel or a private club like London’s Soho House.


As soon as you enter this reimagined 1980s home tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in Broadbeach Waters, it’s clear it’s no ordinary Gold Coast property.

The owner, Sarah Andrews, has taken the aesthetic of a 1960s family home to a level comparable to that of a luxury hotel or private club, such as London’s Soho House. The result is a mid-century modern masterpiece.

Mrs Andrews decided to keep the house on one level, which is unusual for Broadbeach Waters.


Mrs. Andrews, the daughter of Gold Coast developer Danny Andrews, who founded Andrews Projects, has so skillfully blurred the line between old and new that it’s often difficult to differentiate between the two.

The vaulted ceilings are in original cedar wood.


For example, the immaculate cedar ceilings are all original, but the matching wood veneer kitchen is newly built. The dining table is antique, as is the sideboard’s record player, but the benches are from Coco Republic.

Next to the bar is a window seat that takes in the city skyline.


Old or new, the overall effect is that anyone who enters this property is made to feel welcome, warm – at home in the blink of an eye.

The secret to such a successful refurbishment lies in the details and Ms Andrew’s passion for interior design and architecture is evident in her sophisticated color choices and bespoke selection of light fixtures, paint, tiles, taps and furnishings.

“While the simplest details of a home may seem effortless, the irony is that they are often the most time consuming and expensive to implement,” said Ms Andrews.

As the sales and marketing director of her father’s company, Ms. Andrews has helped many people find their dream home over the years, but when it came to buying her own home, it wasn’t so easy.

A lot of properties she looked at just didn’t feel right, but Sarah said that’s how she knew it was Bal Harbor.

“I didn’t have a preconceived idea of ​​what I wanted, it was more of a feeling,” she said. “It was the first time I really felt that attraction with a house.

The dining table is antique restored.


“As far as the renovation is concerned, I didn’t want to just paint everything white. It’s a brick house so it was more about making it the best version of itself and I found a reference to that mid-century aesthetic in it,” she said.


However, it’s not just the interior of this home that will make you want to sit down for a while.

Despite its understated street frontage, the property fans out over a 1,098-square-foot position block, one of only four on Bal Harbour, which is located in the Golden Triangle district.
It has access to over 38 feet of waterfront and has its own sandy beach.

The property has beautiful views, a large lawn and a sandy beach along the 38m waterfront.


The house floor plan is designed to take advantage of the city’s views and skyline, with the bar, kitchen, dining and living areas all connecting to the outdoor areas.

While Ms Andrews said she had enjoyed living in her unique home for the past three years, she had bought another property that she was planning to renovate, albeit in a completely different style.

The house is a hit with Melbourne buyers.


“I live on Instagram and Pinterest. It is a real passion for me – real estate interiors and architecture. I live and breathe it,” she said.

“I’m a creative person and I have a creative outlet here, whether it’s designing a huge building or a house, for me it’s fun.”
